Considering how many reviews I have written in my career, I am surprised that I haven't come across more sites with an anime theme. Once regarded as more of an Asian pastime, anime has definitely crept into the mainstream around the world. So, when my bosses handed me the latest list of casinos to review, LuckyNiki jumped out at me.

Now, I wouldn't classify myself as a fan of anime, so it is easy for me to be very objective when it comes to reviewing this casino. However, I want to ensure that my fair, honest review includes mention of the overall theme of the casino as it may be the one thing that draws a player in over any of the competing sites online today.

As always, I am going to focus on the core of the casino: games, bonuses, and support. Without those pillars, the rest of the site including the "host" Niki aren't worth mentioning. I love to find diamonds in the rough of any casino I review, so let's see if LuckyNiki has any gems for me to pass along to you!

Ratings Breakdown

Overall

LuckyNiki is one of the best casinos I have reviewed in a long time. Even though they are a new entrant, the smartest move these owners could have made was to have Skill On Net manage the operations of the business. This gave the casino access to a multitude of software providers and excellent customer service so the owners could focus on driving traffic to the site.

Game Variety

Holy cow, this casino also offers some sports betting! Yes, it is virtual sports, but that is still a nice addition to the standard casino roster. The only reason that LuckyNiki didn't get a perfect score for game variety is the lack of some additional video poker variants, but overall, I was very pleased with what I found combing through the hundreds of games in the lobby.

Banking

There are all the standard payment options at this casino, including Bitcoin, available for both deposits and withdrawals. I would say that the timeframe to receive Skrill and Neteller withdrawals was a bit longer than I have found at other casinos, which is odd to me as the e-wallets tend to be the fastest methods for players to get their money. Aside from that, I think players will be pleased with all the available options.

Bonuses

While the Welcome Bonus could be a little more aggressive, I will not take any points off, because the rest of the promotions area is fantastic. The team has done an excellent job of putting together a roster of ongoing bonuses that will appeal to a wide array of players. And as you will read later, I couldn't be more impressed with the site's VIP program (and the details they are willing to tell players about). Well done!

Customer Service

I have not come across any complaints about the customer service department, so it is tough not to give them a perfect score here either. The only slight issue I had was the waiting time I faced when I tried to contact the casino via live chat. I reached out either during a very busy time, or they don't have enough agents on staff. Either way, I would like to see this response time tightened up a bit.

User Interface

While the host, Niki, is found on almost every page of the site, I wouldn't say she is presented in an intrusive way at all. The good news is that she can, for the most part, be ignored. For me, I found the color scheme a little hard on the eyes at times, and maybe it was my browser, but I found some of the banners overlapping on certain pages.

Mobile Compatibility

No native apps are available for mobile users, but the majority of the over 600 games at LuckyNiki are accessible via the mobile browser, so it is hard to knock the folks at this casino. When gaming regulations become more uniform around the world, then I suspect we will see an app for LuckyNiki in our app stores.

The Basics About LuckyNiki Casino

LuckyNiki is a new entrant in the online casino space, having launched in 2017. While the ownership behind the site seems to be cloudy, what I can tell you is that the site is operated by Skill On Net, a white label operation that allows owners to focus on marketing while handling all the day-to-day operations of the casino for a fee. I actually like this model for newer casino owners. Unless the ownership group has significant experience in the industry, a casino can fail quite miserably. If there is a good amount of financial backing, then farming out the operations to a third party not only helps with costs but with overall management.

The LuckyNiki games are licensed under the Skill On Net Master License from the Malta Gaming Authority. Something you should note here is that the Skill On Net folks are responsible for the payment processing, meaning that they control the bank accounts for deposits. This is excellent for player security, as the company isn't going to jeopardize their entire business based on a rogue operator who takes off with player money. Overall, operations like this give me a far better feeling of confidence than an individual operator.

The theme of this casino is, of course, anime. It centers around Niki, who is the host of the casino. The owners have built a whole backstory for this fictional character, which I suppose means something to fans of anime in general. For me, I am not too concerned about where Niki came from, as long as the casino she "hosts" all the pieces I need to consider it a worthy casino for my readers.

While players from all over the world are able to access the real money games at LuckyNiki, there are a few exceptions, including the residents of the following nations.

  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Cyprus
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Mexico
  • Romania
  • Spain
  • Turkey
  • United States

Virtual Sports

When I started looking around the site in preparation for my playing session, something unique struck me - the site has a full virtual sports betting section. Most online casinos either stick to being focused on casino or bring in a full sportsbook of which virtual sports is only one section. I really like the fact that LuckyNiki is being progressive in adding only virtual sports to their offering. These games have a synergy with the casino player, as they are games that can be played easily while sitting at a card table or a slot machine.

For those of you not familiar with virtual sports, these are computer-simulated versions of sporting events featuring actual teams and statistics from their live counterpart. The popularity of these games comes from the fact that a fan of a certain team can bet on them at any time, not having to wait for an actual live match to take place. Also, the games only take a few minutes to complete, which is far shorter than having to wait hours for the completion of a wager.

You can bet on the following virtual sports and leagues at LuckyNiki:

  • Darts
  • Champions League Soccer
  • Soccer
  • Cycling
  • Tennis

You can also try these games for free, which means you have an opportunity to give these a shot without having to risk any actual cash. You only need to create an account to access the play money version of virtual sports betting.

The Casino

Well, that was a pleasant detour from my normal casino reviews! After checking out the different virtual sports, it was time for me to turn my attention to the casino games. I really like the way the games are laid out on in the lobby. There are several categories of games, highlighting not only different categories but also the most popular games at the site.

Game Variety

Checking out the lobby of LuckyNiki, at first glance I am thrilled with the variety of games. There are hundreds of slot titles, and the layout of the lobby makes it very easy to navigate to find the game you are looking for.

Software

This may be a new casino, but from a software perspective, you would think that it has been around for a long time. The folks at Skill On Net not only have their own games but have built a platform that allows for easy integration of other pieces of software. Their relationships with these providers mean that clients like LuckyNiki benefit by having a roster of vendors that includes:

  • Evolution Gaming
  • Net Entertainment
  • Extreme Live Gaming
  • Microgaming
  • SG Interactive
  • Aristocrat
  • Bally Technologies
  • Barcrest
  • Lightningboxgames
  • NextGen
  • Skill On Net
  • WMS

Seriously, I am impressed with the number of industry-leading software companies being used at LuckyNiki. Now, let's see how well they have been rolled into one product.

Slots

After my first glance at the lobby, I knew I had to start my playing session with the slot machines. If you are a fan of the reels, then you are going to be in heaven at LuckyNiki. The main benefit of having so many different software providers is evident in the slots titles. Here, you are going to find games with every payline imaginable and designs from all the top developers in the market. Not only that, some of the vendors have created partnerships with entertainment brands to bring familiar characters to life in the casino.

Those of you who are like me and are more interested in winning a big jackpot won't be out of luck here. There are dozens of progressive jackpot slots available, including several featuring jackpots currently sitting in the 7-figure range!

With well over 600 slots to choose from, I thought I would give you a list of some of my favorites. This should give you a good start on your slots journey, and please let me know your faves as well!

Video Poker

Why do I always go on about video poker in my reviews? Well, to start, I love the game personally. I have played thousands of hours in land-based and online casinos, and I never tire of the game. Also, if played correctly, the payouts on some machines are very good, and while you might not hit a Royal Flush that often, you will still get paid.

One of my favorite updates to video poker over the years is the ability to play more than one hand at a time. This is why I am super excited by the LuckyNiki offering. While the casino doesn't have as many variants as I would like to see, they do offer all their games in up to 100 hands at a time! That is a real rush, especially when you are drawing to a big hand 100 times over!

Here are the 4 types of video poker you will find at LuckyNiki.

  • Joker Poker
  • Jacks or Better
  • All American
  • Deuces Wild
Table Games

With so many software partners to draw games from, this is the only area of the casino lobby that I am not thrilled with. Honestly, I don't know why casinos leave out games that they are offered by a vendor - it isn't like they take up space! While I would like to see more games, the ones they do have should satisfy the majority of my readers. This time I got into some 3 Card Poker during my playing session. I forgot how much fun that game is, and if you haven't tried it before, I think it might be worth your time to give it a try!

  • 3 Card Poker
  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Casino Hold'em
  • Craps
  • Pai Gow Poker
  • Red Dog
  • Roulette
  • Sic Bo
  • Spanish Blackjack
  • Three Card Poker
  • Three Wheeler
  • TXS Hold'em
  • Ultimate Texas Hold'em
Live Casino

Well, this is a real treat for players who like live dealer games. In most cases, when a casino offers these games, they use one software provider for the games. That in itself is excellent as there are still loads of sites that don't have these games in their lobbies. I love live dealer games, as the gameplay is far more like a land-based casino environment. I also love being able to choose from a pool of dealers, a very nice added touch to the live casino.

At LuckyNiki, you don't just get software from 1 supplier, but from 3 different companies. Net Entertainment, Evolution and Extreme Live Gaming are all found in the live casino lobby, which means 3 times the number of tables and dealers to choose from! You can play all these games with a video-streamed dealer.

  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Casino Hold'em
  • Ultimate Texas Hold'em
  • Roulette
  • Super 6 Baccarat

Banking Options

While this casino doesn't have as many unique payment methods as other casinos I have reviewed in the past, there are certainly enough to take care of almost everyone's options. The payment solutions range from traditional credit and debit cards to the newest payment method to hit the scene, Bitcoin.

As far as I can tell, the casino does not charge you any fees for depositing or withdrawing your money, although your payment processor may have charges built in on their end. From a timing perspective, it seems that Ecopayz and Entropay are the fastest ways to get paid, although all your request will be subject to a 24-hour pending period at the casino while their fraud team checks your play before the turnaround times you see below.

Bonus Promotions

With such a great selection of games to choose from, it is easy to be distracted from what promotions are available at LuckyNiki. Have no fear - that is what I am here for! I dug into the promotions page and here are a couple of offers that I want to review in detail for you.

Money IconWelcome Bonus

I always start with the Welcome Bonus, as this is typically the first promotion any player will take advantage of at an online casino. There are 2 different thoughts about these bonuses. Some people like to see huge percentages and numbers, while others want more realistic chances of converting the bonus. Personally, I am somewhere in the middle. I think a site should make it possible to convert some of the bonus, so you don't lose faith in the site, while I also think being aggressive with the amount is fine in many cases.

The LuckyNiki Welcome Bonus is really designed for the slots player. It isn't a huge amount - 100% up to $100 on your first deposit, but then the site adds in 100 free spins as well. The wagering requirement to clear the bonus is 30x the deposit plus the bonus, which is on the high side but still within the industry standards.

Money IconDaily Offers

I won't go into the details of each of these offers as you can read about them on the website, but what I do like is that there are multiple offers available every day. More importantly, these offers appeal to different types of players, not just slots players. I like the attention to detail the site has put towards these ongoing promotions.

Money IconVIP Program

Loyal readers of my reviews will know how much importance I place on the VIP Program offered by a casino. This tends to be a deal breaker for me when it comes to recommending a casino or not.

The LuckyNiki VIP Lounge area of the site offers one of the most comprehensive programs I have ever come across. Not only is the program multi-tiered, but all the information on how to qualify for each level and what rewards are available when you do qualify are explained on the site. Have a look at the rewards given out to the top tiers of the program.

  • HUGE regular bonus offers
  • Member support from your own personal VIP Account Manager
  • Invitations to world-renowned exciting events
  • Great promotions to win big money
  • MASSIVE monthly FREE bonus awards
  • Faster payouts when possible
  • The sky is the limit for true VIP players!
  • I can't say enough about this program - they have really knocked it out of the park!

    Mobile Compatibility

    The Skill On Net platform allows for all of the casino games to be integrated into a non-download accessible format. This means that players are going to be able to play their favorite games without having to use their PC, as the mobile browser found on most devices will accommodate the gameplay. I can't guarantee every device will work, but the majority are covered with this delivery method.

    Customer Service

    Okay, so I know the casino has a host, but does that actually help at all from a support perspective? I headed to the support tab from the homepage and found my answer. There is a ton of information listed to help players, including a full set of Frequently Asked Questions. If you want to contact the casino, you can choose from email, telephone, live chat, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. However, don't go asking for Niki, because she isn't available.

    Seriously though, I am very impressed with the level of detail once again put into this section of the site by the LuckyNiki management team.

    Summary

    So, when I started this review, I wasn't sure how I was going to react to the anime theme or this fictitious host character. I like to just get to the tables without any major distractions. I was pleased to find that while Niki is a fixture at the site, how you interact with the character is totally in your hands. There are hundreds of great games, a live dealer section to die for, and an amazing amount of transparency when it comes to their support and VIP departments. This review has been a real treat for me to write.

    There is no need for me to get too wordy here. If you are living in a country that can access LuckyNiki, then I highly recommend that you give them a shot. I am sure that you will not be disappointed.

    FAQ

    Does the site have any no-deposit bonuses?
    They do! When you register your account, you will receive a notification that you have received a small welcome offer that does not require a deposit. These are typically a set of free spins on one of the site's slot machines, but hey, they are free, so everyone should take advantage of them!
    How do I make a deposit with Bitcoin?
    To make a Bitcoin deposit, you need to set up a Bitcoin wallet and buy the cryptocurrency first. If you are having trouble doing so or need any help, then you can reach out to the payments team at LuckyNiki, and I am certain they can walk you through the process.
    Where can I find out my VIP Status?
    Your VIP points, status level, and the number of points you need to earn to reach the next level can all be found in the "My Account" area of the website. When you log in to your account, you will see that link on the top right-hand side of the page. Contact support if you have any questions about the program that cannot be answered on the page.
    My bonus disappeared from my account. What happened?
    If your bonus dollars have gone missing, it is most likely that they have expired. You want to check the Terms and Conditions of every offer from a casino to see how long you have to earn the bonus. The casino always has the right to remove the bonuses for any reason. If you think it was done in error, then you can just reach out to them to try to find a solution.
    Why did this site spend so much time on the Niki character?
    Well, all casino sites have themes, and fans of anime (and characters in general) love to have as much of a backstory on them as possible. This is no different than wanting to know more about a character you may like from a movie or television show. Yes, anime may not be for everyone, but the choice to play along is totally up to you.
